trillianastra: (I beg your pardon? [eric])
I've been thinking about the credits for True Blood, and the more I think about it the more I realise that the credits sequence is, pretty much literally, perfect for the show.

Basically, we've got four main elements -
1. The song. Now, IDK about you guys, but I am firmly of the opinion that they couldn't have picked a better theme if they'd had one written especially. (Me? Jace Everett fangirl? Well, since you mention it...)

and then there's the visual component:
2) The dancing and the half-naked people - representing sex.
3) the alligator, snake, venus fly-trap, decaying animals - death, obviously.
4) the religious people/ceremonies/stuff - well, religion is a big part of the show.

All in all... the song, combined with the images, just makes this awesome, bloody, picture of what vampires are - sex and seduction and blood and death, all bundled into one. No wonder they're so popular.

And now, on to the episode...

Y'know, I know it's fictional and all, but this show really does provide interesting insights into the minds of fundie christian crazy types.

I jusst have one general, non-spoilery thing to say.

I FRAKKING LOVE THIS SHOW. Where else would you find this mix of sex and violence and blood and pure, utter, side-splittingly hilarious crack?

Anyways....
